ARTS CENTER COMPLEX
$10 MILLION NAMING OPPORTUNITY
Space 4 Art’s Permanent Home on Market Street is envisioned as a cutting-edge, multidisciplinary arts center where artists live, work, share their work, and provide project-based STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) education for local schoolchildren in an innovative environment. When artists live and work together, they discover new ways of thinking, working, teaching students, and connecting with their communities. This grows the local arts community, expands San Diego’s burgeoning creative economy, serves as a catalyst for economic development in a historically disadvantaged neighborhood, and improves student outcomes across the board, and especially for underserved youth. The arts center will serve as an unparalleled resource for local and visiting artists; a vibrant, crucial nexus for arts and culture in San Diego; and an arts enrichment center for students of all ages and stages of development, with a special focus on historically under-represented individuals and communities.

This 1,400 square-foot, commission-free gallery will serve as an opportunity for local artists, including student, artists, to exhibit their work. This space also serves as a beautiful, one-of-a-kind venue for a wide range of community events.

Rental fees will be on a sliding scale for maximum community benefit.

When completed, Space 4 Art’s premiere theatre will be available year-round on a sliding scale for events and programs to benefit the entire San Diego community.
